The River

You rise and fall in tranquil
ripples and waves
oft times deep
cling to banks and other subtle curves
seeking every secret place.

Lure me
(like a lovers arms)
Mist lifts
showing your lust for life
as a perfect shiver runs my spine
it is all connected to
the divine through sublime
genetic memory.

she lives and breathes
free as yet, from
winters freeze and
with steady rhythmic rhythm
throbs inside my veins.

Enveloped within this embrace
I remember then
why I laughed or, cried
as thought drifts with you
on your journey
to the sea.

For those who don’t already know, I love water.  I’m Cancer star sign, have always been drawn to any type of water, and also La Luna, the lady moon. Grew up living close to or, a short bus ride away from water in a seaside town and, cannot imagine people living anywhere that doesn’t have water nearby. When people say they live in the middle of a country, and haven’t ever seen a beach or the ocean, I just know it would kill my soul to not be near to water, albeit, a river, stream, or, an ocean. I love it’s music, movement, living energy and, nearly always find my inner peace by being close to water.

Also love the stars and space.

Life….it’s all so fascinating.

  1. Beautifull written, Bren. I love the first stanza especially. I have changed up my background on my site as per your suggestion I do believe they were a bit distracting…the pencils…so added just some colors. I was trying to engage my artistic side but perhaps later I will find something more in that arena but for now maybe the colors are better. Thank You!

  2. You sound so much like D who was also in love with the ocean! Spent a lot of time hearing those ocean waves lull me to sleep. Nothing like it.

  3. it is all connected to
    the divine through sublime
    genetic memory…

    that made me smile…as it is true…

  4. I’m a Virgo, basically afraid of water … energized and reborn being near it. Nice Magpie!

  5. So is that why you fell in because you love it so much?..haha Yeah the water is grand, along the cat would much prefer land.

  6. Bren, I am also a cancer and I love the water. When I am in the ocean I feel healed. Beautiful poem!
